Albury house raided

POLICE raided an Albury home last week as their investigations into suspicious packages sent to The Border Mail offices in Wodonga last October continue.

Wodonga Detective Sgt Graeme Simpfendorfer said a Gulson Street home in West Albury was searched last Tuesday.

Property was seized from the home, but police would not disclose what sort of items were taken, saying it would hinder their investigations if publicised.

No arrests were made.

Sgt Simpfendorfer said police are waiting for an analysis of DNA taken from the letters sent to the newspaper’s main office in McKoy Street to be finalised.

More than 100 staff were evacuated after white powder was found inside two letters addressed to The Border Mail on October 17.

The letters said the white powder was anthrax.

Sgt Simpfendorfer said testing revealed the powder was actually a combination of the fertiliser rose dust and suplhur.

No one was injured.
